2018 Massachusetts Association of Planning Directors Conference

Join us in Quincy for the 2018 Massachusetts Association of Planning Directors Annual Conference!

Come see for yourself the incredible investment and revitalization happening in Quincy at the 2018 Massachusetts Association of Planning Directors Annual Conference. In addition to a keynote address from Mayor Thomas P. Koch, conference sessions will focus on housing, economic development, climate change, cultural planning, and tools & techniques for planners of all levels - and don't forget our favorite land use law update. Thursday evening will feature a walking tour of Downtown Quincy, with the final stop at the MAPD reception. You can find a conference schedule at the MAPD website, as well as hotel booking information. Please see below for FAQs. 

Catch up with old planner friends, meet new ones, and learn something new to bring back to the office...we hope to see you all in the City of Presidents! 


MAPD Board of Directors


Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please contact Jessica Allan, AICP, MAPD Vice-President, with any questions:

Can I get an invoice?

The beauty of using Eventbrite is that the confirmation email IS your invoice! Please check your email after you register for the invoice (which will come as an attachment). We will have receipts at the door upon request.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

Yes, but changes to your tickets will only be made if they are received by Friday, May 18th at 6pm.

I'm a speaker attending both days, how should I register?

If you are a speaker and attending the conference, please register according to your membership category (member vs. non-member).

I'm a speaker, but can only attend my session. How should I register?

There is a speaker-only category (last registration option). 

I am not an MAPD member, but I would like to join. How can I become a member to get that great low rate?

Please visit the MAPD website to learn more about membership, which is $90 for 2017-2018. It's a steal!

Can I update my registration information?

Yes, please email Jessica, AICP, MAPD Vice-President, with any questions:

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Save a tree! We'll have all of your information at the registration table at the Conference, so you will not need to print your ticket. We use EventBrite to keep track of everything. Please think, before your print!
